Lost at Sea is an illustrated book about three strangers that all share a traumatic experience when a little boy falls overboard while on a whale watching boat. The story follows how each character deals with the event in different ways while falling in and out of their imagination. I created and illustrated the book […]
Pink Paper Circus’s illustration work is full of wonderful raw accidents and textures. I really enjoy the mixture of patterns with observational drawings. It reminds me of how fun sitting down with a paper and a box of new pencils can be.
Patrick Hruby is a mentor of mine and genius illustrator and designer. His work is geometrically designed and stunningly beautiful, with friendly usage of colour. His work never fails to amaze me, or make me smile.
I’m a big fan of Steven Harrington’s work. But my favourite is the bright, colourful pieces he created for an exhibition at Known Gallery in LA. He describes this piece as ‘taking the inner, intuitive workings of an artist and drawing them out, sharing the experience with the world’.
Julian Glander’s illustrations and animations jump off his website at you in a frenzy of movement and joy. His website is almost as creative as his actual animations; every link takes you further into the rabbit hole of vomiting, wiener dogs, and magicians. It’s nice to see an artist not taking illustration too seriously and […]
Prague-based illustrator, Lukáš Fibrich, has created a series of illustrations based on some music subcultures that still exist today – goths, punks, rockers, indie and rappers. Characteristically, members pride themselves on their musical taste, often dressing to affiliate themselves with similar members, yet also maintaining a sense of individualism within this music subculture. Fibrich has done a […]
Check out this exclusive peek at an upcoming graphic novel about the RFK assassination. It features amazing art by Daniel J. Zollinger, while author Doug Brode shares some inside information that you were not taught in high school. Published by McFarland.
Sydney’s annual Grad Program has already kicked off and the theme this year is around the ‘Make it Famous’ challenge. Applicants will be randomly assigned everyday objects and it’s their task to make them look famous. They will be judged on their strategic thinking and creativity. To kick off the campaign, DDB have partnered with some of […]
As an avid traveller and professional illustrator, Chandler O’Leary often sketches what she sees on the go. With hundreds of sketches that didn’t quite fit her work projects, she decided to share them with the world.
I discovered this band a few years ago and have been a fan ever since. Check out their music video for their inspired track Wood. The animation is outstanding and the black and white illustrations are created by French illustrator and band guitarist, Matthieu Bessudo (Mcbess). The pen and ink style has an old cartoon […]
My cupboard is overloaded with vintage ceramics. I used to have my studio right next to a thrift store. Every Monday, when the fresh goods had arrived, I went there to look for second-hand ceramics. The pieces started to pile up and I decided to hand-decorate them with my illustrations. Sometimes I have to start […]
I’m always searching for really good up-and-coming design studios for fresh inspiration. Tireman Studio is definitely a new design firm to watch. The studio was founded by Shogo Ota, who inherited the DNA of infamous Modern Dog Design Co. His unique artsy wild style is recognized mostly by his music poster designs, but if you […]
This was a very exciting project. I made a poster design/illustration for Steve Aoki’s concert at Sasquatch Music Festival. I came up with a Japanese influenced, almost modern twist of Ukiyo-e, wood block print based on his Japanese heritage, and I used an aggressive image to capture his music.
Sylvia Plath is probably known best for her emotionally tumultuous poetry, so it’s hard to imagine that she’s also written The Bed Book for children, a collection of poems about, well, beds. Her primary audience really, were her own kids. The original British edition came with illustrations by artist Quentin Blake. It’s a really charming […]
Remember Shrinky-dinks? So, imagine taking that same material and having a talented illustrator create one-of-a-kind artwork on it, then fashioning the dinks into jewelry. Ridiculously cool, yes? This is exactly what Krishna Chavda, the artist behind Nanu illustration, does with her completely unique jewelry line. Using custom hand-illustrations such as dinosaurs, feathers, birds (sometimes slightly […]
